Please “mark your calendars” for Sunday, March 3 at 3 p.m. The community is invited to attend the Music Advocacy Group’s (MAG) 16th annual benefit concert for the Orcas School Music Program in the Orcas School K-8 gym (the old gym). The concert features more than 100 musicians from the Orcas Choral Society, Island Sinfonia, Orcas Youth Orchestra, Orcas Island Community Band and Orcas A Capellagos, a new youth choir. Admission is by donation, and all proceeds go to MAG, a 501(c)(3) organization.
“Now, more than ever, we rely on the funds from this concert to help us continue to build a strong school music program,” said Pat Hunt, Treasurer of MAG. “If you’ve heard about the outstanding performances by our young school musicians at the regional contests in Bellingham, then you know how much your dollars help. School music matters!” Those who cannot attend but wish to donate can make checks payable to “MAG” and mail them to MAG, P.O. Box 1171, Eastsound, WA 98245.
